Still so hard to believe

It’s still so hard to believe. That Stuart left us on Dec. 12, 2015. Seven years ago today.

He was only nine. And full of life. For those of you who remember, thank you for your compassion. For those of you who don’t remember, hug your furbabies and scroll through the archives. Get to know Stuart.

He hasn’t left us really. Only in body. His spirit lives on. Forever.

Love you little man. To the moon and back.

Cancer sucks. Hemangiosarcoma sucks worse.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Seven years. That can seem like an eternity, or still hard to believe. Any age always feels like it’s too soon, but nine is definitely way too young. The hole that’s left in the heart permanently hurts, and you don’t think the day will ever come when you can mention the name without drowning in a sea of tears. The day does come, but the hole remains. We manage to go on, and new companions find their way to us. While they never replace those we lost, they bring us joy and love in their unique ways. And the memories we have do live on forever, which allows us to carry our love forever. Hopefully Stuart, and all the others we have loved and lost, are waiting for us somewhere. Oh, to hold them again . . .

    🐾❤️🐾 Thinking of you today and fondly remembering Stuart. These anniversaries are hard on our hearts. I sometimes think “Stu-art” because it’s just so clever and then remember his beautiful markings and personality. We hope Winston channels some of Stuart and makes you smile. Hemangiosarcoma…I have nothing nice to say about it…just some bad words.
